Gase should try to shove Bell down our throats on Sunday, but the QB guru will waste another talented RB.
Gase’s offense has been every bit as slow as it was in Miami. He privately blamed Ryan Tannehill and other quarterbacks for finishing dead last in offensive plays per game in two of his three seasons with the Dolphins. So, what’s his excuse for the Jets ranking 31st in offensive plays per game (58.8)?https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/foot ... story.html
Give him time. He’ll eventually point fingers at everyone except the person attached to those fingers.
In the meantime, Gase insulted Bell Monday likely without even realizing it when asked about the veteran’s running style.
“On certain runs, he’s changed his style and hit it more downhill,” Gase said. “Especially in the last four or five games, he’s really done a good job of trying to make sure that we’re staying ahead of the sticks… For the most part, I feel like he has adjusted his running style to really benefit us to really keep us ahead of the sticks.”
Bell’s running style is rooted in finding the best — not always the first — available hole. It’s part of his greatness. To intimate that Bell was somehow hurting the team with that approach is ludicrous and unfair to a player who has accomplished much more in his career than Gase has ever done as a head coach.
